Back in March, the Volvo XC60 was crowned as the 2018 World Car of the Year. And now an extensive list of candidates for the 2019 version of the prestigious award has been announced.

After a lengthy evaluation and voting process, the list will eventually be whittled down before the overall winners are announced at the New York International Auto Show in April 2019.

As many as 35 candidates (some of which have yet to officially launch) in the main World Car of the Year category have been listed, ranging from the second-generation Audi A1 and yet-to-be-revealed BMW 3 Series to the box-fresh Suzuki Jimny and fifth-generation Toyota RAV4.

Meanwhile, five vehicles – the Audi A7, Audi Q8, BMW 8 Series, Mercedes-Benz GLE and Volkswagen Touareg – have been shortlisted for the World Luxury Award, with five more (Aston Martin Vantage, BMW M2 Competition, Hyundai Veloster N, Kia Ceed GT and McLaren 720S) in the running for the World Performance Car title.

There are as many as 11 eligible vehicles in the World Green Car category, while the World Urban Car segment contains five contenders (each of which also features in the World Car of the Year category).

Vehicles in the running for the World Car Design award include those eligible for any of the other World Car awards (they are automatically entered).
